Two people were arrested in a fatal shooting at an apartment complex that left one dead, Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. L’Jean McKneely Jr. said.
The shooting took place around 3 a.m. Monday in the 2100 block of Sherwood Meadow Drive. Cary Walker, 40, was found inside the apartment suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Police arrested James Johnson, 25, and Shameka Foster, 28. Johnson was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison for principal to second-degree murder and Foster was booked for obstruction of justice.
According to booking documents, Johnson was armed with a gun at the scene of the shooting, which he later gave to Foster. Foster, his girlfriend, hid the weapon from police, the documents say.
McKneely said the suspects and victim were living together at the time of this shooting and a motive is unknown at this time.
Additional arrests are pending, according to McKneely.
